Gary, what kind of heads and valvetrain do you have in your car and what does it run?
267 intake and 185 exhaust from some FULLY PORTED heads? Thats it? This is what you guys are always boasting about? WOW! My Edelbrocks that you talked so much crap about are ONLY VALVE POCKET ported and rounded out at the intake mating surface and dont even have a runner port and they flow 267 and 185. Dont believe me? Look it up because its fully documented tested and proven! WOW!! Well we all know what they say...Men Lie...Women Lie...BUT THE NUMBERS DONT!!!LE2 heads, all well documented on the big Camaro boards.

While head flow numbers are an important factor in generating power, they are not the only factor.267 intake and 185 exhaust from some FULLY PORTED heads...............THE NUMBERS DONT!!!
Careful now!!!!!I can't believe I just wasted 20 mins. reading all this and really didn't learn a thing.....but the entertainment value was PRICELESS!
What, you don't think BK's car would run faster with a more optimized cam?Heck no. For the post I followed: Randy and Gary.
Not really. I think when BK and Paul built that engine, they took everything into account. I think it makes alot of power and perhaps contrary to what many here believe, once you have an in-the-ballpart-camshaft that works in your set-up, there isn't going to be any sgnificant horsepower to be found by changing the cam. A road course style suspension alone I think costs as much as 7 tenths, maybe more when drag racing. Then take the weight into account: they're makin power
Mike you maybe right.
But where the power is in the Curve will help.
BK cam LSA is wide..think he said 114 degrees.
If he got one with 107 he would shift the power to the midrange.
Could pick up about 3 tenths but that is about all.
Or the opposite, BK's engine in your car... It would probably still run 10's cwm5We could install my engine in BK's car and it may go marginally faster, but not much and for reasons I've already stated.
Dan, pro stockers run 118 to 120 LSA and their power range is around 8800 to 10,000 rpm. The LSA is necessary for the engines to idle. For us only running to 7000 rpm, we can move the power around by degreeing the cam.

Like my ass was on fire? LOL.BK..
You have a great combo.
Drive it like you do your life..
Add a 1/2 to 1 qt of tranny fluid (despite what the dipstick (not you lol) says) and see if the revving stops.Etown yesterday. Tranny is almost done. 2-3 shift you can hear the engine rev a bit before it catches and starts pulling again.
Comments, thoughts, suggestions?
yeah I got talked out of it because if I overfill and it heats up and overflows it's a DQ at the track - they tend not to like the dripping stuffAdd a 1/2 to 1 qt of tranny fluid (despite what the dipstick (not you lol) says) and see if the revving stops.
